The Laws of Science Require a Creator

The laws of nature do not have a naturalistic cause. The cause of the laws of nature was not the laws of nature.

“The miracle of the appropriateness of the language of mathematics for the formulation of the laws of physics is a wonderful gift which we neither understand nor deserve”1 (Eugene P. Wigner).

There is an objective mathematical structure seen in the physical universe. An example is the relationship of the periodic table and mathematics. One element is distinguished from another by the number of electrons, neutrons, and protons.

“How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought which is independent of experience, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality?”2 (Albert Einstein).
